Jess Symons - Beyond The Medal Ambassador - South Australia
Hi, my name is Jess. My love of running is relatively new. I was overweight up into my early teenage years when I made some drastic lifestyle changes.
I started running in 2013 by following the c25k app after the birth of my twin daughters, I was quickly hooked to running.
I completed my first event in 2014, a local 10km event. It wasn't fast but I did it! I love the sense of achievement and self-belief running brings.
We welcomed our third and final daughter into the world in June 2015.
I am currently training for my first half marathon in April 2016. I am loving the journey so far and am very excited to see where I can go this year!
I run for the freedom, mental balance and my health, as well as the sense of pride and achieve it gives me pushing my limits.
I am a member of Running Mums Australia (RMA), an amazing group of fellow Mums who uplift and inspire each other to reach their personal goals.
I try my very best to not compare myself with other runners. We are all on our own journey, reaching for our own goals. You are only ever competing against yourself.
